This Was a Week that Needed an Infusion of Inhaling from My Rose Petal Box!

I have had a Rose Petal Box on at shelf in a curio cabinet for decades.

It is filled with rose petals from roses that have long since withered and died.

Removal of the lid releases the most amazing perfumed fragrance into the air.

Each petal represents a wonderful experience in my life.

Many petals represent the celebration of a wonderful event or occasion.

Included herein are some visuals and a couple of audio clips of memories that are concentrated within rose petals in my Rose Petal Box. While I’m confident you will enjoy these moments created around the world even though you weren’t there, know that each rose petal represented by a photo herein conjures up volumes of images, conversations, people, places and vision of glorious destinations around the globe.

Have a listen to my NarcyCalamattaRosePetal that wafts from a very special rose petal collected in Malta, a place you must visit!

Most of the petals were gathered at unique and extraordinary destinations around North America and around the globe.Even more amazing about my Rose Petal Box and its contents is that both the box and the rose petals are imaginary and live in my mind, my heart, and my senses shelved in a curio cabinet in my brain. There’s no way to misplace, break or lose it as it is firmly lodged in the fabric of my being.

The diversity of the cultures, destinations and venues within those destinations that are represented with rose petals that exude spicy to sweet aromas is enormous and spans the globe.

COUNTY ANTRIM, NORTHERN IRELAND

Like a photo album, a musical CD or a video that you open to entertain yourself and uplift your spirits, a challenging day will send me to find, in the corners of my mind, my Rose Petal Box, unscrew the lid and place my nose over its wide mouth to deeply inhale the fragrance of marvelous experiences past.

Rose Petal Memory: SPENDING TIME WITH JOHN HUME, 1998 NOBEL PEACE   PRIZE WINNER at BEECH HILL COUNTRY HOUSE, DERRY, NORTHERN IRELAND

One day I may share with you the challenges that the past few weeks have presented, perhaps fictionalized in my next novel, SECRET, a sequel to RUMORS, which, if you haven’t read it, put it on your MUST DO list as you will love it! In the meantime, I am focused all of the obstacles the need to be surmounted and to attain our goals in all aspects of what we do to bring the world to our audiences in the most informative and entertaining way. And taking a deep whiff from my Rose Petal Jar was a daily prescription this week to getting past the kinds of aggravations that I know that each of you are confronted with at some points in time in your personal and professional lives. The key to success is finding all the solutions necessary to surmount the unexpected and unforeseen redwood trees that fall across the road you are traveling on.

For some, for too many, I have met in my life, identifying obstacles is the excuse for why a good idea cannot come to fruition. For others, like me, whose philosophy is, “Failure is not an option,” finding paths over, under, around and through the obstacle is the reason one needs to identify that the obstacles are there.  That process is kindred to Winston Churchill’s reminder, “Never give up!”

From the theory that, “When it rains, it pours,” such was the feeling of the week past.  Happily, last week is past and the trees are being cleared away so that the path will continue to be an open roadway on the journey to new and continuing travels and adventures. But there’s no question that I relied on my Rose Petal Box and its wafting perfumed scent to infuse my being with wonderful memories of people, places, experiences, incidents and events that create an uplifting cloud pervading the atmosphere and whirling around me like a tornado of positive energy.

I highly recommend having a Rose Petal Box of unique memories to inhale during a challenging time. I hope you create one for yourself and maybe create a tangible form for the person in your life that you celebrate with on Mothers’ Day , Fathers’ Day or other special occasion by conjuring up a decorate container that you fill with photos, mementos, and even key words on a little card that bring back a flood of happy memories and good times with just a quick glance.

So for this Mothers’ Day, if you don’t have the time or even know where to start to share this gift of a Rose Petal Box with the person in your life you celebrate tomorrow, share this blog with her and wish her shelves and shelves of Rose Petal Boxes from you. . .and from me too! And, if you are going to create a Roses Petal Box, maybe you’ll want to include among the contents a gift certificate for a hotel stay or other travel experience. The prescription for all that ails you, take it from Dr. Abrams, is, “Take 2 trips and call me in the morning!” Go make some Rose Petal Box memories!
